I am sharing some of my latest pages from my beloved art journal. My safe place and playground of ideas.
Some tips when you are working in your art journal:
- trust yourself
- know there are no mistakes.
- allow your own voice to ring true as you create what speaks to you
- be true to what you love. You are your own unique artist.
- paint as often as you can
- let life and all it’s chaos fade away when you paint.
I’ve realized through my art that the way I paint flowers is unique because I infuse my soul and my art reflects me. That is not always easy to share. I am going to continue to share and do what inspires me. In the hopes it inspires you too to do the same. Here are just some of my latest pieces from my art journal that I hope speak to you!
My Aunt reminded me to “Go home to who you are”…………..and I have done that. These pages have been for me which I am excited to share……..
This next page I made my own hand torn 3-dimensional flowers….
and I got so much into the texture that I kept going with it on this page….this is one of those pages you just have to feel it!
Changing the world – YOUR world – doesn’t require earth-shattering feats, but rather doing little things with great love. Think simple, not spectacular. For instance, the best portion of your life will likely be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with the people who matter to you. So be present! There are few joys in life that equal a good conversation, a good hug, a good smile, or a good friend.”
